Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) | Review

My rating: ❤❤❤❤  of 5!

Fifty Shades of Grey

 

 


 

 

So, I guess by now most people know of the Fifty Shade books and/or films. I myself, didn’t like the films but I’m still unable to make up my mind about the books. First of all, there’s the whole Twilight fan fiction aspect of it, which I guess isn’t too bad, but I had expected more from the published books.

As a character Anastasia is extremely underwhelming, confusing, immature and just weird. One moment she’s an innocent girl wearing pig tales (bit weird for a 21-year-old, but okay) – the next she’s into Christian’s kinky f*ckery.

I know there’s a lot of debates about whether or not this should be deemed as an abusive relationship, but to me it was never about that. Let me clarify, Anastasia is 21 years old and everything they do, is done with her consent. However, because of her confusing and immature nature, she keeps changing her mind on the matters at hand without keeping Christian in the loop. So actually, she’s the unstable one. In the books Anastasia uses the “I do it because I like him” excuse, which would be easier to understand if she was a teenager, but at 21 you don’t need to know everything, but you should know how to say no if something makes you uncomfortable.

The narrating left a lot to be desired and I was really fed up with the constant struggle between Anastasia’s inner diva and her lack of confidence. However, I think my biggest problem with this book was the way that Anastasia lost her v-card. She’s never had sex before, yet when he says “come for me” she does. I wish my first time had been that mind-blowing!

 

However, despite all of the above I still found myself enjoying the book. When I originally read these books, it was the first smut I ever read, and I wasn’t disappointed. I was intrigued. So, no matter how bad the writing is, no matter how annoying Anastasia can be, there’s a special place in my heart for these books, that introduced me to the world of smut, which is why I give the book three hearts.

  1. Haha I personally can see why people call this an abusive relationship, but I do agree it drives me nuts when the girl is being so unclear about whether she wants it or not; it’s pretty misleading I feel like. Also, I really wonder about the inner diva thing; I haven’t read this book, but I’ve heard it gets quite annoying. 😂
